  • The Cornerstone (Hillsborough County, FL Ground Zero of 2012 Election)

    National Journal ^ | June 23, 2012 | Beth Reinhard
    Welcome to the molten core of the political universe, the hottest battleground in the biggest battleground state. Since 1960, Hillsborough County has called every single presidential election except for one—and there’s no reason to think that voters here won’t do it again. Look around this county of 1.2 million and you’ll find a mash-up of past and future: a solidly Democratic city bracketed by Republican-leaning suburbs; strawberry fields, ranch-style homes, and gentrified urban neighborhoods; Puerto Ricans, Cuban-Americans, African-Americans, Midwestern retirees, college kids, active military, and young families; the brick and wrought iron of historic Ybor City, and the stucco and...

    STRESSFUL lifestyles could be the key trigger for incurable Alzheimer’s disease, scientists believe. Even the trauma of bereavement or moving home could bring on dementia. Scientists funded by the Alzheimer’s Society are investigating the link and hope their findings could lead to new drug treatments to fight the disease. A study at the University of Kuopio in Finland has found that the long-term effects of stress may be the biggest cause of the disease. When stressed, our blood pressure rises as our heart beats faster and levels of the hormone cortisol in the bloodstream also increase. Experts believe once cortisol...

    The Hill's Healthwatch ^ | June 25, 2012 | Sam Baker
    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Monday revived her inflammatory accusation that President Obama's healthcare law creates "death panels." Palin used her Facebook page to capitalize on the publicity surrounding the Supreme Court's upcoming healthcare decision. She said she wanted to take the opportunity to stand by comments in a 2009 Facebook post that touched off a firestorm of controversy. "I stand by everything I wrote in that warning to my fellow Americans because what was true then is true now, and it will remain true as we hear what the Supreme Court has to say," Palin said in Monday's...

    I know you're busy writing to your friends to ask them to skip your birthday present this year and send the cash to Obama, but I just want to interrupt you for a minute to introduce you to 32 parents who probably won't be fundraising for Obama anytime soon. Kent and Josephine Terry are the parents of slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, who sacrificed his life protecting ours. Last week, they spoke up for the first time with a message to Obama, who has asserted executive privilege to hide documents on Operation Fast and Furious. When asked what they'd...
  • Quayle: Obama ‘behaving as an emperor,’ Napolitano as his ‘court jester’

    The Daily Caller ^ | June 25, 2012 | Matthew Boyle
    Arizona Republican Rep. Ben Quayle asked Homeland Security committee chairman Rep. Peter King to bring Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano before his committee to answer questions about her decision to suspend immigration law enforcement programs in his state on Monday. Napolitano’s decision came in the wake of a Supreme Court decision that partially upheld Arizona’s controversial immigration enforcement law. While other parts of the law were struck down, the part allowing state and local law enforcement to inquire into someone’s immigration status remained. Quayle berated Napolitano’s decision in a letter to King, saying “we have entered upon a new...

    This month, the Obama campaign sent out hundreds of staffers and volunteers to gay pride events around the country in order to sign up more volunteers, reports the New York Times. “Pride is probably the best opportunity to engage the community in large, concentrated numbers,” Jamie Citron, the national L.G.B.T. vote director for the Obama campaign, said to the Times. About six weeks ago, President Obama became a supporter of legal gay marriage. From the Times: [H]undreds of Obama field staff members and volunteers…fanned out at a dozen gay pride celebrations across the country over the weekend with a meticulous...
  • Stories of Obama buyer's remorse?

    I have been chatting with a number of people who voted for Obama in 2008. I have noticed during the last two years that quite a few of them have commented that Obama was not who they thought he was. They really believed that Obama was someone unique and different compared to the candidates of the past. They all thought he was so special. Quite a few were taken in (or should I say hypnotized) by his speaking skills. I am not sure what they thought Obama would bring to the White House and what he would do for Americans,...

    By this time, it’s obvious that our glorious leader and fearless visionary is facing a very dicey path on his way to ‘another four years’. The facts are that no one in their right mind wants to see another four years of government sponsored penury… or government tyranny. Barack Hussein Obama committed his latest unconstitutional and illegal act by pronouncing the illegal alien ‘dream act’ through imperial fiat. Nothing, but nothing, this president has done to date is going to have the slap-in-the-face effect that his latest pandering will generate. While the extra-constitutional behavior of Barack Hussein has the Kool-Aid...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Justice Department has set up a hotline for the public to report potential civil rights concerns regarding the Arizona law that requires police to check the immigration status of those they stop for other reasons. The hotline phone number is 1-855-353-1010. The email is: SB1070(at)usdoj.gov
  • Obama to Spin Amnesty as his "Emancipation Proclamation"

    06/25/2012 7:35:03 PM PDT · by publius321 · 22 replies
    "...An “emancipation proclamation” is how he will have his servants such as Andrea Mitchell and David Gregory spin this recent declaration. They are working tirelessly at NBC; just last week they had another of their weekend anchor/propagandists actually comparing Jeremiah Wright to FREDERICK DOUGLASS! So what is his "end game"? Why does he continue to methodically manufacture these specious Lincoln "equivalencies"? When observed within the context of his agenda, this could reasonably be interpreted as ANOTHER part of the equation to eventually force secession and foment civil war..."

    This week, White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett appeared at the National Association of Black Journalists Convention in New Orleans. During her appearance, Jarrett reiterated the deep affection and appreciation that President Obama has for the African American community. Jarrett stated that President Obama has “genuine love” for the black community and that he is proud of being black. She also responded to questions from those who felt that there is no pleasing African Americans who have the audacity to ask the president to actually do something for black Americans. When I process Jarrett’s remarks, I first wonder what black...

    Arizona's Senate President Steve Pierce had strong words about President Barack Obama after 287(g) was suspended between the government and many Arizona law enforcement agencies. "Acting more like a spoiled child than a President, the Obama administration today pulled the agreement to have Arizona law enforcement officers enforce federal laws on illegal immigration. "These are agreements used across the country to protect citizens, but President Obama and his accomplice, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, only ripped up the agreement with one state, Arizona..."

  • Obama Administration Refusing To Assist Arizona With Immigration-Status Checks (AZ counter-suit?)

    Ace of Spades HQ ^ | 6/25/2012 | Ace
    I think this might serve as basis for a counter-suit. The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police. There will be an increased number of calls from Arizona police, checking on immigration status-- and Obama refuses to budge the number of personnel handling such calls. In most cases, they simply won't even return the call (or pick up the...
